THE  POWER  OF  LAUGHTER

by James Loren

 

Have you ever been frightened or under stress and suddenly found yourself laughing? After a good laugh, you probably felt a lot better. Laughter often helps us deal with frightening or stressful situations. It relaxes us and makes us feel safe.

 

Another example of how laughter affects us is its power to strengthen the connections between people and make them feel part of a group. Have you noticed that if someone tells a joke to a group of people, everyone laughs, even if the joke isn't very funny? Researchers discovered that people watching a funny TV program in a group laughed 30% more than those who watched the program alone. Laughing together signals a feeling of belonging.

 

 Political leaders know how to take advantage of the power of laughter. They tell jokes and use laughter to make their audience like them more. They know that creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere can help to convince people to support them.

 

Doctors and researchers have also discovered the power of laughter. They have learned that laughter can help people fight diseases. They discovered that laughter reduces stress hormones in the body. This helps patients get better more quickly. Research also showed that laughter has a positive effect on children who had to get injections. Children who watched funny movies while getting the injections were much calmer than those who didn't watch the movies. Even the nurses who gave the injections reported feeling more relaxed.

 

As a result of these findings, some hospitals trained doctors and nurses to encourage their patients to laugh more. In addition, doctors have published many articles about the effect of laughter on their patients. It seems that laughter is really a very serious subject!
